Last week we wrote our letters to Santa. I decided to make a party out of it. So the boys had a little Dear Santa Party. They wrote letters. They sipped cold milk. They ate yummy treats.
Last year I made up these Dear Santa letter printables.
The letter to fill out is super fun and is easily used for older kids and younger ones. I made changes to the envelope image I made last year. Last year I found an address online that I had been told worked. Well, false. SO this year I did a little more research and found several options that work great.
The address I used:
PO Box 1
Santa Claus, IN 47579
This address goes to a museum in Santa Claus, Indiana, where they have volunteers who receive the letters and will write a response back to any letter written before December 20th as long as the return address is readable.
SO I made a new envelope image with that address.
You can still use the first envelope design if it doesn't really get mailed. However, the new address can be mailed.
With letter and envelope in hand we were ready to start our party.
I found these adorable paper products at Target in the Christmas section.
I matched up the straws, Santa plates, and napkins with a few things I already had around the house.
We served Oreos and cinnamon Santas.
I think everyone had fun.
From the littlest Santa believer.
To the oldest believer in the Spirit of Santa, goer along to keep the magic alive for his younger brothers.
This little party was waiting for them when they got home from school. I had so much fun just putting together this simple festive Dear Santa Party. I think we have a new tradition.
